Should we rent a car during short trip to San Sebastian area?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning to spend a few days in the San Sebastian area flying into San Sebastian from Barcelona on an Wednesday morning in June and then flying out of Bilbao to Canada early Saturday morning. I can't decide whether having a car for this short period would be beneficial.
We will be booking a hotel for 2 nights in San Sebastian and then checking into to a hotel in Bilbao on the Friday. Where we stay in SS will depend on whether we have a car or not (looking at Villa Soro which has parking included or Hotel Astoria 7 closer to the bus- open to suggestions). Without one our plan would be to take a taxi into SS and a bus to Bilbao.
The advantage of the car would be to allow us a little chance of seeing some of the neighbouring areas although we are open to hopping on public transit. Our time is quite limited so not sure of the necessity or whether a car will be helpful or a hindrance
We have not looked into hotels in Bilbao yet.
Any help is appreciated!
